Showcase Australia incorporating Asia-Pacific Conference 2020

2 December-3 December

Because of the coronavirus, we have moved our Asia-Pacific Conference from May in Sydney to Canberra this coming December. For the first time this year it will be incorporated within our annual Showcase conference.

The majority of speakers have already told us they will join us in December. We’ll be confirming this exciting new programme soon and hope you’ll be able to join us.

For how the coronavirus has affected our other events, click here.

This year’s two-day Showcase Australia incorporating Asia-Pacific Conference brings together biometric users from both the public and private sector, as well as technology providers, academics and privacy advocates.  The agenda will discuss the opportunities biometrics offer and potential implementation challenges.

This annual event presents an unparalleled opportunity to meet with specialists in their field. Our expert speakers will relay the latest information on privacy and the responsible and ethical use of biometrics. Key themes for this year’s event will include:

* Privacy/policy
* Technology
* Use cases of biometrics

1 December 2020: CONSULTATIVE WORKSHOP: Navigating the Biometrics Institute Good Practice Framework

Time to roll up your sleeves and apply biometric good practice to operational scenarios!

The Biometrics Institute Good Practice Framework is a first-of-its-kind good practice tool for biometrics that outlines the stages of the strategic planning, procurement and operation of a biometric system or network. Its primary function is to provide a structured pathway through the factors that may influence or constrain a biometric application.

We are exclusively inviting members to take part in the second round of consultations, to test the as-yet-unpublished framework with real life scenarios before we release it more widely later this year. We are looking for people with a varying degree of expertise from across our biometrics community to roll up their sleeves and actively take part in a consultative workshop. We are also inviting regulators and privacy advocates to add their perspectives.

You can read more here.

The consultative workshops are free for Biometrics Institute members and we expect high demand, so please register your interest by emailing carolyn@biometricsinstitute.org.
